Holy crap, this man is pretty. I thought he was a soap opera star, but apparently he’s some British race-car driver named Lewis Hamilton. And here he is at signing for his book (those seem to be popular these days…) about his life’s story. The twenty-two-year-old has been surrounded by a media frenzy in his native England, over his decision to relocated to Switzerland. His British fans are in an uproar, saying that the young Formula One driver is turning his back on his fans and his country. Hamilton says it isn’t so.
“I love my fans; not only in the UK, but all around the world,” Hamilton said. “I love making people happy. It gives me great pleasure to have someone come up to me and ask me for a picture or an autograph. It’s a great feeling for anyone. There’s no doubt in my mind that I love my fans and I love spending as much time as I can with them. I’m at a point in my life where I have an opportunity to see the world and I’ve chosen Switzerland. For me, it’s not a tax issue because I’ve been in England for the past few years and I’ve been paying my taxes and it’s really not an issue – you’d have to ask my management about that.”
I don’t blame him, really. I’d move to Switzerland if I could. That whole country is built on the values I hold most dear–cheese, chocolate and cheese.
